- Worship at Grace Church on Saturday night. Great teaching from Luke 24, saw 10 people follow Jesus in baptism. We knew 9 of those folks (6 kids and 3 adults), and went to a celebration party for 3 of them afterward.
- Cut grass on Sunday morning. Not typical Easter behavior, but it was well overdue. I'm sure my neighbors appreciated it. Then, right before lunch, took the kids to the store to by some discounted chocolate bunnies.
- Watched Joanna and kids make "Resurrection Rolls" (see picture above). Marshmallow (representing Jesus), butter (oils), cinnamon and sugar (the embalming spices), and dough (burial cloth). Put in oven (tomb) for a few minutes, and the rolls are empty inside. Apparently, our friends the Osborns had the same idea (and she gives more detailed instructions).
- Elijah showed me his Easter scenes made from Legos. He got this idea from seeing pictures from some friends on Facebook, plus a site about Bible stories with Legos. Love his mind!
